One Of The Great Perks Of The Job

Today, I spent part of my morning visiting with "Rajaji" - but you can call him "Raj". Raj lives at the Carnivore Preservation Trust in Pittsboro, NC. This is a fascinating place. At the very least, I encourage you to visit the website, which is linked above. I'm telling you people, this place they call Pittsboro (Chatham County) is FILLED with hidden treasures.
Since coming to work for WLHC "Life 103.1" in December, I have discovered more about Chatham County than during the last 7 years I've lived here! Shame on me. But one of the perks of working at the station is the ability to get out in our listening communities, meet people, network and, ultimately, sell radio ads to as many as possible.
Today was one of those days. The CPT is hosting it's second annual Black Tie & Tails Ball in March and we're working together on radio buys to promote the event. I had put together a "spec spot" for them to review, which could've been done via email but, instead, I was invited to the preserve to present my proposal and meet the director and, well, the cats!!!
I couldn't have thought of a better way to enjoy my morning cuppa' than strolling through the CPT grounds and standing in awe of this magnificent feline.
Oh, and when your tour guide/host suggests you step back from the fence when the cat turns his backside to you and raises his tail...take my it and do it quickly! (...and I thought Simba had good aim...)

Hi - do you know that your blog is posted on the

chatlist? There is a permanent link to your blog and several of your individual daily entries are there.

He linked to my blog also and I've asked him to remove it. I am not comfortable having everyone in Chatham county peeking at my personal postings - that's not what I intended my blog to be.

Just thought you might want to know! Karen

No, I was NOT aware of this and, like you, am not interested in having my blog published there! Thank you for the heads up!
